For those very few days of sunshine we actually get here in the UK, I think it’s crucial for us all to make the most of it. Starting with the right drinks to keep us hydrated, but also to enjoy. A cider with lots of ice or an ice-cold beer are great and very refreshing but for those who are new to the taste of Pimms, this is a drink that you’ve got to become familiar with!
Up until recently I was unfamiliar with the taste and decided to see what the fuss was about. I wasn’t disappointed and after a little experimenting with the flavours, I came up with my own version of the cocktail ‘Summertime Pimms’.
Not only is the cocktail a delicious blend of flavours, it’s also a type of Fruit Punch with plenty of ‘alcohol-absorbed’ fruit, if you fancy a more-enticing fruit salad later on!
I hope you enjoy this alcoholic delight and hope we get plenty more opportunity to drink together in this unpredictable UK sunshine! Enjoy!
